First Day of Spring

I sometimes recollect lines of poems to suit the mood I'm in or to reflect what is going on a day. Percy Bysshe Shelley's poem Ode To The Wild West Wind is Autumnal but in it there is a question.
"If Winter Comes, Can Spring Be Far Behind?"

Winter has come and come again with brutal temperatures and snowfalls. This is the first day of Spring and it snowed again. The best thing about a spring snowfall is that it doesn't last long due to the increased level of sunlight. There could be a few more snowfalls but they won't accumulate as they did in the past months.

In another month buds will appear on this tree. We will know definitely that it is Spring.
